What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding refers to the raising of finance from a large number of individual investors who each contribute small amounts of money, typically via the Internet. Crowdfunders run online campaigns where you post your project or business idea, and monitor the income generated during the campaign. The crowdfunding company will either charge you a set fee for listing your funding request, or take a small percentage of the monies raised. Below is a list of local and international crowdfunders to consider, should you wish to pursue this type of funding.

Finfind provides its services free of charge to businesses seeking finance. Our primary purpose is to link SMEs with all the relevant finance providers and finance products that match their funding needs. As a matching service, we are not required to be a registered finance provider as we do not loan money directly.
